Team members from our Austin office recently enjoyed a Friday afternoon on a bike tour around downtown and the East Side to learn about some past, current, and future BIG RED DOG projects! Afterward, we had a beverage or two at some local breweries!

Project Designer Dane Edwards said, “It was really great being with everyone. A bit of history, a bit of Engineering, a bit of planning, a bit of bicycles, a bit of beer. Sort of your perfect end of day, end of week camaraderie event here with BIG RED DOG. It’s one thing to work in CAD and build models, and it’s a whole other thing to get out in the field and see it built. It really brings home what we do and reinforces the value of what we bring to the table and what we do as individuals. It’s impactful.”

Ashley Weldon, Accounts Payable Administrator, added, “It’s a really cool team event. We’ve got shareholders here, we’ve got interns, accounting, and all different departments are here today and we can just hang out together and get to know each other better. It’s just really cool collaboration… I feel like it brings us together as a team. It’s just really an awesome, fun event and I can’t wait until next year for the third annual bike tour!”
